Online resources for employment support

Supporting people as they find work and then take up their new role can be achieved through a variety of channels. For Housing Associations, you have a lot of different interactions with your tenants - some of which will already be through a mix of face-to-face and online contact.

Online training can cover three main areas of employment support: skills training; industry familiarisation; and broader advice and help around moving into work, handling finances, etc.

Benefits for Housing Associations

Employment support also lends itself to a blended approach by mixing online learning and advice with other methods of help and support. Online resources offer the benefits of low cost, 24x7 support and training across a broad set of topics. This complements the more tailored support that staff can offer as needed.

  • 24x7 availability of employment support topics
